Sebastian Buchholz - elapsed:remaining EP [txtn007]


Published November 15, 2003


Hailing from Germany's far north, with a rock-solid history in technoid sound manipulation, Sebastian Buchholz delivers a dense five-tracker dominated by minimal driving beat structures and lush chordscapes. Organic sounds that nevertheless always wear their electronic origin on the sleeves abound. Sebastian's music is at times dark, yet not menacing - rather, it is an all-envelopping and almost tactile blend that always preserves a warm inner glow.

"Nocturnal lurking" plays a game of hide-and-seek with half-opaque sequences that lead you deeper and deeper into labyrinthine pathways. "Risque joke" churns its way into the nether layers of your cochlea to deposit a dubby payload. "Nebula" chases an ethereal cookie monster through puffy pad clouds, while "Odem"'s minimal loop leviathan surprises with suddenly erupting thunderous warmth. Finally, "Muse upon the 63" eases you back into the real world with a laid-back, leisurly stroll through indoor hanging soundgardens.

Sebastian has dedicated this release to the memory of Christian Morgenstern, who was taken away much to early. 1975 - 2003

Subject: Only the first track really convinces me ...
Sebastian Buchholz begins his debut EP for Textone with the shadowy minimal cut "Nocturnal Lurking", that slowly evolves within dark static
atmospheres to find enlightening. "Nocturnal Lurking" is the best song on this EP - "Risque Joke" and "Odem" are minimal tracks we've heard many times, while "Nebula" focuses more on darkish soundscapes. "Muse upon the 63" sounds empty in the beginning, but turns warm friendly
with the progression.
